Vinyl LP pressing. 2017 release. An introduction to a new mystical world, Waiting Around fuses the great Brit folk-jazz traditions of Nick Drake, Bert Jansch, Davy Graham, with further-flung sounds of Gene Rains, Eden Ahbez, Moondog and Sun Ra. Whilst their influence would not sit so brazenly on John's rolled-up sleeves, each one possesses inspiring techniques; "I deliberately listen to how music is recorded and put that into my process," John explains. "A lot of percussion in exotica stuff or Indian, South American folk gives me ideas. Things like a distorted reggae hi hat or a backing vocal that's way too loud and bleeds all over the other musicians - I like natural accidents which you only get with tape." Fittingly titled, Waiting Around is the fruits of melodic craftsman, John Stammers' labor. Arriving no sooner than six years since the release of his 2011 debut; a physically demanding day job and fascination for all things analog has made way for a record of stark beauty and enduring quality - delayed only by an unyielding sense of intrepid experimentalism.
